For courses in Occupational Safety, The Basics of Safety, and Safety Management taken by management, engineering, or technology majors who are NOT preparing to become safety professionals. Unlike most textbooks on occupational safety and healthwhich address the needs of students who are preparing to become full-time safety professionalsthis book focuses on the needs of students in other fields that have an interest in, or partial responsibility, for safetye.g., managers, engineers, and technologists. Using a convenient handbook approach, it provides nineteen consistent chapters, each focusing on a major concern of occupational safety and health and how it affects productivity, quality, and competitiveness. (This is an abridged version of the author's comprehensive text Occupational Safety and Health , 3/e.)
